Which tortoise breed is right for you?

So many tortoise species and tortoise breeds to choose from, which tortoise is right for you?  Alto common a question and probably the most important.  Do you want something large and can you give it the proper space indoors or outdoors?  Consider your location, the highs and the lows of winter and summer.  This will help decide what type of species fits where you plan on building their habitat (indoors or outdoors).

For example, if you live in a colder climate than you most likely want a small to medium sized tortoise.  This can allow you to explore quite a few species.  Do you want to go on the larger size of medium and look at leopard tortoises? Purchasing a small tortoise that stays small is an option.

Indoor vs Outdoor Tortoises
